Lady of Shalott tapestry shows the amazing work of John William Waterhouse from 1888. The Lady of Shalott shows a scene from Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem from 1832 of the Lady who loved Sir Lancelot. Here in this glorious work by Waterhouse (1849-1917), we see the Lady escaping from a tower along the river during a storm, sailing towards Camelot. She was enchanted to be forbidden to look at the world directly. Instead she was to look with a mirror and to create what she saw in a tapestry. We see the sumptuous color and composition in this work, which shows the details of the scene including the ornate boat, the beautiful illumination of the Lady Shalott's white gown, the marsh reeds, and a tapestry which accompanies her. The Lady of Shalott tapestry is backed with lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
